My Zuk was leaking coolant this morning. Didn't appear to be a hose, seemed to be coming from behind the alternator. I'm not very familiar with anything under the hood as it has run fine every day for over 1.5 yrs since I got it. Heat was working. Anyone know of areas prone to leak? Around water pump?
the area most prone to spring leaks behind the alternator is the little O-ring that seals the water tube into the rear of the water pump housing. years of hot-cold transitions will cause the seal to become brittle, and eventually crack into pieces.
easy to fix, tough to get at for repair [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
you can probobly still drive it. mine's been leaking for over a year now - i just fill it up now & then. i have all the parts to replace the water pump, timing belt/cover, o-ring, etc., just haven't found teh time to do it. hopefully this winter... good luck,
